  I have a Classic Winchester Model 70 in .25 WSSM (Winchester Super Short Magnum) that was my Dads but now mine I want to get rid of. Being that it is from 2009 or so (he wanted that specific one) there isn't a lot of factory loads (at least hard to find) available though he does have 5 boxes but almost all of them have been handloaded 1X. I took it to a gun dealer here in Erie and he said it would be hard to sell in this area mainly due to the availability of ammo. He looked it over and said it was 95% but then said it was actually more like 98%. Just a pin head sized dent in the stock and 2 lines maybe an inch long that looks like rubbed but the styrafoam packing so is hard to notice unless looking very close. He suggested GunBroker.com so I joined but looking at it have no idea how it works.
Anyone have any suggestions on easier sites to use? 25 wssm.jpg  mark in stock 1.jpg    second mark in stock.jpg

Can't find any info on a .25 WSSM Classic Model 70 even on Winchester's website??

Did find this website:

A friend of my brother has info. on it and has retail value then 98% down to 60%. Winchester made the WSSM in 3 calibers only, .243, .25 and .270(?). It shoots nice but having a .243 is enough for deer so got a 7mm-08 for bear...besides I always wanted that model and caliber so it was a good excuse.

I think Gunbroker is probably your best bet Jon.  Unfortunately there is a small market for that caliber.  Those WSSM's sounded great at first, but like you said they don't do anything that the normal calibers do for the most part (for a deer hunter). 
You are looking for a real gun crank.  The only real way to reach them is Gunbroker.  Or put it on consignment at the local shop and wait it out, if they even want to deal with it.

Gunshop isn't interested in doing that. Think was wrong, know they have a .243wssm and .25wssm and now think it was a .223wssm not the .270.
There is a guy who comes in to the archery shop for "Thirsty Thursday" night (owner and some of his friends quench their thirsts) and I'd said he could buy it for $300.00 plus the shells if he wants. 90% was about $$350.00 think and $95% was $450 (believe these are what a gun guy said he found, at least it was higher then $300.00). He said he didn't want to buy it as I could get more. Told him he could still have it at that price as then I don't have to mess with the auction, FFL paperwork from a dealer, etc. You want to do it?? If so would get a percentage (and no not 100%).

I couldn't do it Jon.  The only time I've ever used Gunbroker I had my buddy do everything for me through him.  I spend a lot of time looking, but only one purchase ever.
